BLOOD, SALT, WATER is a gripping tale of greed, power and misconception from acclaimed two-time winner of the Theakston's Crime Award, Denise Mina.

Salt water lifts blood. Only salt water.

Loch Lomond is a mile deep but the woman's body surfaced anyway. Found bludgeoned and dumped in the water, she now haunts Iain Fraser, the man who put her there. She trusted him and now that misplaced trust is gnawing through Iain's chest. He thinks it will kill him.

Nearby Helensburgh is an idyllic Victorian town. One-time home to a quarter of all the millionaires in Britain, it is quaint, sleepy and chocolate-box pretty. But the real town is shot through with deception, lies and vested interests.

As tensions rise and the police seek a killer, the conflicts that lurk beneath Helensburgh's calm waters threaten to explode. All Iain Fraser has to do is keep on lying.

"Mina's novels are engrossing, deeply rooted in reality and astutely perceptive about human nature and the internal politics blighting modern police forces. Blood Salt Water is also beautifully written and plotted, cementing the author's place as one of the finest contemporary British crime writers" - DAILY EXPRESS

"Mina is one of the most fiercely intelligent of crime writers . . . testament to how brilliantly intricate and psychologically complex her books are" - GUARDIAN

"Denise Mina is the finest contemporary exponent of British crime fiction"- THE TIMES

"Another authentic-feeling well-written tale of dark Glaswegian crime . . . dourly brilliant" - METRO

"The elegance of the plotting . . . Mina's writing is lithe and spare, but alert" - SCOTSMAN

"Vintage Mina: a complex three-ply plot involving a shooting, blackmail and corruption, all described with hard-hitting prose and psychological acuity" - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
